Fresh Bikes Rematch

So, I finally made it to a Fresh Bike's Hill ride. And no the free food at the end of the ride did not help get me there. Ok yes it did. 

Anyhow,  from what I remember from last year it was a hilly ride so I was prepared mentally going into yesterday's ride. Last year I struggled and cried on the side of the road because I thought the ride was so hard. Seriously, I cried!! What was wrong with me?
Yesterday, not so much. The ride was fun and I enjoyed myself. Well I mostly enjoyed myself since my aero cap fell off and I basically had my entire bottle filled with GU brew get sprayed on me until I finally stopped to dump the thing out. Boomer and myself were so sticky! But I can't believe how much better shape I am in this year and I can't believe I thought this ride was so hard last year. Plus, well riding in matching jersey's always makes a ride more fun.

At any rate, this makes me happy to know I can some what handle hills now. But, I know I still have a lot of work to go. When I go to another Tuesday ride I think I will go early to do one loop by myself and one loop with the group to get more miles in. Plus no skipping out on my brick next time because I'm too tempted to socialize.

Happy Wednesday All and it was nice seeing everyone last night :) 



  1. It was great seeing you there last night! You have definitely come a long way in one year!

  2. Woohoo! Glad you made it out, sorry I missed you! You are going to own those hills in August!

  3. I think the jersey looks better on you! I was thinking of doing an extra loop next time too- 15 miles is too short for the hassle it takes to get out there.

  4. I'm sure it was great to have a clear measure of how much you've improved since last year!
